I'm breeding my loan mare (De Niro x full sister to Piccolino, WEG gold medallist) to Silvermoon. I'm very excited about that. She's just been PGed and should be AIed next week.
My other mare (ID x TB) is expecting her current foal any minute. She's the size of a small bungalow and dripping milk. Once I've seen what she has to a different stallion to her previous two by Silvermoon I'll make a final choice between Cendy (Consul (Danish Warmblood by Churchill) x Come Back II x Mago) or De Niro or Caretino Glory (Cheenook x Glorieux) or possibly possibly risk frozen semen on an older mare and try one last time with Silvermoon.
Well, with the caveat that my plans usually change /solidify at the 11th hour, the stallions I am using this year include (most likely):
Romanov or Sir Donnerhall
.... and / or Zonik
I have made a decision to breed one mare to Freestyle. She had a lovely colt by him who is now showing a lot of talent as a five y.o. in dressage. For my other mare I'm using either Comic Hilltop or Denario; I'm still not sure about that one.
Barnhartvale Belle (Alybro xx x feu d'enfer xx) is due in a few weeks with a Balta'Czar foal and will be bred to Livello
New girl Zinzi (Clinton x Nimmerdor) will stay open this year... her Nabab de Reve foal is due in July so I'd like to move her up next year.
(I'm not sad about this.. I'm pretty excited to ride and show her a little bit!)
.. but I'm looking at doing an ET with her next year as well and looking at Numero Uno and ???
